(Newser) – The big play making headlines from the NCAA tournament today is RJ Hunter's late 3-pointer that gave Georgia State an upset win over Baylor. But it's not just because of the shot. Hunter's father, Ron Hunter, is Georgia State's coach, and as he was celebrating the shot, he fell off the rolling chair from which he was coaching the game, reports AP. And why was he in that rolling chair? He injured his Achilles celebrating his team's last win on Sunday. "It was a great game, but I'm not going to coach, I'm going to be Dad right now," said Hunter, who had to be helped up but was otherwise OK. "This is my son. Proud of him." Slate is already calling it THE moment of this year's tournament.
